Ugh deadlines...

Submitted two feature length articles today with a third due by Friday. Plus I need to do some photos for two of them.It amazes me how closely the mental fog of a long day's writing feels like physical exhaustion. (Apparently that's science and stuff. The thinking probably burned more calories than physically running the keyboard did.)Have some more gratuitous gun pr0n as a sort of pre-review teaser... [Author: Tam]

My Dad’s Garden

It’s hard to say this, but I’ve been guilty of taking my Dad for granted. But, in all honesty, it’s his own fault. He has made it awfully easy. He always went to work. Always provided. Always took care of anything and everything. And did so without seeking any favors, attention, or gratitude. My advice to anyone who does not want to be taken for granted: Once in a while, create some drama. Trip people up. Be unreliable at a crucial time. Or disappointing somehow. Or terrifying. Or, almost drop...

Puma SGB Bear Wood Folder Pocket Knife Review

Opinion Puma SGB Bear Wood Folder Pocket Knife Idaho – -(AmmoLand.com)- A couple of weeks ago I wrote a product review on the Puma SGB Gentleman’s Wood folder. In case you’re like me and favor a knife that is just a little bit bigger then you might be interested in the Puma SGB Bear Wood folder. It is almost identical to the previously mentioned knife except that it is a little larger. It has a 2.8” blade as compared to the 2.3” blade on the Gentleman. But it will still fit inconspicuously i...

Microsoft Just Updated MS Paint With New Features

After announcing MS Paint’s “deprecation” back in 2017, Microsoft has gone in the other direction. Not only is Microsoft Paint sticking around in Windows 10—Microsoft just updated it with new keyboard controls! This is pretty big news. Microsoft “deprecated” MS Paint in 2017, which meant Microsoft would stop updating it. The media pronounced it “dead,” but Microsoft happily announced that Paint would be moving out of Windows and into the Store app. It would still never be updated again, of cour...

The Greenhouse Returns

This thing… I’m not sure if I’ve had a single project on the farm that has brought me such varying levels of joy, frustration, and what the actual fuck. (That was the “what the actual fuck” part, in case that was unclear.) The abbreviated version of the greenhouse saga is this: I spent four years dreaming about putting a greenhouse up in my garden, but it never made it quite high enough on my priority list until 2016 when I finally bit the bullet and ordered a kit greenhouse (from here.) I p...

Ereader App with Auto Sync of Highlights, etc. once Wifi Available

I've been using Moon+ Reader Pro for years, and it's a great app in many ways. But one of the things I wish was different was that syncing/uploading of Highlights/Bookmarks/ReadingPosition only occurs if you're connected to the internet (eg, Wifi) whenever you exit the book. I can understand why Moon+ Reader, and probably a number of similar apps, work this way. But with my trying out the Likebook Mars eink reader I'm finding that I don't want to have Wifi on unless I truly need it, since I want...
